Honey Almond Granola

Today I’m keeping things short and sweet.

There’s not time to ramble when we have granola to make!

This easy peasy granola features sweet honey, nutty almonds, and crispy baked oats for the ultimate snack!

Use it for a tasty trail-mix or pile a scoop on top a creamy bowl of yogurt.

Homemade Granola with Honey and Almonds

go go gadget granola!

Consider this an easy peasy base recipe for all your favorite mix-ins. You can keep it super simple and make it as written (because it’s oh so delicious as is) or go nuts with the extras.

Walnuts, pecans, sunflower seeds… have at it! You can also add dried fruit to the granola after baking (if you add it before it kind of overcooks a little, no bueno) – dried cranberries, raisins, dried cherries, and dried apricot are all super tasty options.

I’m also a huge fan of adding things like chocolate, shredded coconut, and sometimes a little peanut butter or pumpkin spice for good measure – all is fair in love and granola.

For a super sticky granola that breaks off in glorious clusters, skip stirring at the halfway point and simply rotate the pan. Then, after cooling, break the granola apart into large clusters or sheets.

Ingredients

  • ½ cup melted coconut oil or avocado oil
  • ½ cup honey
  • 2 TBSP pure maple syrup
  • ¾ teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 + ¼ cups raw sliced almonds
  • 1/4-1/2 cup pepitas
  • 4 cups old-fashioned rolled oats (use certified gluten-free oats for GF granola)

Instructions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 300° F and move the center rack up a level so it's on the second level/rack from the top.

  2. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.

  3. In a large bowl, whisk together coconut oil, honey, maple syrup, vanilla, honey, salt, cinnamon, and ginger. Add your oats, sliced almonds, and pepitas and fold the mixture together.

  4. Transfer granola onto parchment-paper lined baking pan.

  5. Flatten the mixture into an even layer with a silicone spatula, adding pressure so the granola is nice and compact. Bake for 20 minutes, then rotate the pan (180 degrees) for even toasting and stir the granola. Bake for an additional 10-15 minutes or until golden and crispy.

  6. Ovens vary from home to home so just keep an eye on it and yank once it's your degree of golden perfection!

  7. Once you remove your granola from the oven, allow it to cool on the baking sheet until completely cooled. This will give it some time to get that signature crunch we all know and love! (Granola won't fully crisp until it cools)
